TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is a low-viscosity wood rot restoration and repair solution that seals deeper & cures stronger than industry-leading penetrating epoxies. It has no VOCs, no odor & is 100% waterproof once cured.
This 2:1 system is ideal for restoring rotten or damaged wood, or sealing new wood for lasting protection against humidity, salt, mold & mildew. It works by gluing cellulose (wood) fibers back together, sealing a bare, porous wood surface from the inside out. Double the penetrating power by mixing acetone with the epoxy resin solution in equal volume. Easy to apply by brush, roller, or inject via syringe. Surfaces may be painted or varnished after light sanding.
Choose from Traditional (65-90 F) or Cold Weather (40-65 F) formulas in Pint, Quart, 1/2 Gallon & Gallon kits.

Cleanup is easy. Wear latex gloves, wash off with soap and water. No solvents required.
APPLICATION NOTE: The wood must be bare and unfinished. Also, TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will not penetrate and level well when applied over some stains. Always test an area first. DO NOT USE on top of Minwax oil-based stains.
TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy is perfect for use during the colder seasons. Compared to our traditional TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy, our Cold Weather formula offers similar performance characteristics, but cures completely and reliably in cooler temperatures. Its tack-free properties also allow you to sand sooner.
WARNING: TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy should not be used as a fast-cure epoxy in warmer temperature conditions because doing so can be unsafe and result in premature exotherm, brittleness, and improper curing.

I used this to seal a white oak sailboat rudder that I made. The epoxy soaked into the raw wood beautifully and the high gloss finish was achieved after only two coats.

I am restoring a 1954 Glen L. Witt outboard runabout. All wood construction. The deck is plywood and I took it down to bare wood. Then I used penetrating epoxy (thinned 50/50 with acetone) to firm up and prepare for varnish. The thinned epoxy penetrated deep into the plywood and the whole structure feels much stronger. I have now put on two coats of varnish (at least one more to come) and it looks fabulous.

I was used for filling gaps in a few cherry wood cookies.

Works great sealing my carving projects for painting before clear epoxy cover coat application.

I made a teak and holly plywood floor for our powerboat after removing the old carpet 4 years ago. I sealed the wood after final cut according to the instructions, it has been spectacular. Standing water after a waterline break, spills, etc, the floor looks perfect. No discoloration, no staining. The 100% penetration of this product worked perfectly.

Used to repair an area of dry rot near rib, keel and garboard plank. Penetrated the area effectively. Easy to use in cooler northern New England spring weather.

I'm building a cradle boat using some barn wood that is soft and somewhat brittle. The penetrating epoxy soaked in nicely, sealed the wood and gave it needed strenght.

Used it before and reordered for a new project. Like the penetration and results of treatment. Easy to use and versatile with addition of thinner for better penetration.

It worked ok. I Don't think that the acetone made it penetrate any better. I wish that the instructions were clearer it never mentioned that u should sand it first. Sort of confused of the difference between this and the table top epoxy.

It brought out the grain in my walnut bookcase, adds a shine that is really bright.
